The article discusses the advice of Brian Freking, area livestock specialist at Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension, that U.S. cattle producers should examine pastures for post-tornado debris. Freking warned that cattle will eat anything that looks interesting in the pasture and warned that insulation can cause bloat, impaction and gastro-intestinal problem when consumed. The article also suggests that cattle producers administer rumen magnets or reticular magnets to remove metals.
